Sandy Alderson's comments on Jacob deGrom show they & no one in the MLB know why they're using innings limits

The practice of limiting innings for young pitchers in Major League Baseball is common, though no one knows why, or how, to do it. Imagine the weight lifter working towards a size (or, in smaller goals - a new weight target) just quitting in Mid-August. "I'll head back to the gym in January."No. No way. They're going to keep building on the past day, week, months...

Alderson Says Blockbuster Deal Possible, But Wouldn’t Bet On It

Sandy Alderson told reporters at Citi Field that it’s unlikely the Mets make a deal before the Trade Deadline – sort of. “If I had to make a guess, I would say nothing will happen,” Alderson said. “But you never know what’s going to transpire in the next three days or so. Clubs that may be having conversations elsewhere circle back based on what they think their options...

Sandy Alderson: Mets Unlikely To Make Any Deals

Sandy Alderson told reporters at Citi Field that it’s unlikely the Mets make a deal before the Trade Deadline. “To make a guess, I would say that nothing will happen,” the GM said. Of course, no run-up to the trade deadline would be the same if Sandy didn’t say something akin to this. The Mets have been shopping Bartolo Colon and Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported that...

New York Mets trade rumors: will Sandy Alderson pull the trigger?

With the trade deadline right around the corner, trade speculation and rumors are reaching their peak. It is no different with the New York Mets. I have thrown out some names of players who could be traded over the last few weeks. The only question remaining is will Sandy Alderson pull the trigger. Over his time with the Mets, Alderson has proven to be very deliberate in his actions...

Wilmer Flores or Daniel Murphy: A decision needs to be made

Since Sandy Alderson took over as the general manager of the New York Mets, offense has been the need. Through the draft, Alderson and Co. have attempted to replenish a minor league system that desperately needed offense. They signed guys like Curtis Granderson in the hopes that he can give the lineup a boost over the next four seasons. At one position, second base, the Mets have...

Sandy Alderson’s call to action is going unanswered

“I think the last 10 games were important because they make the next 10 games relevant to what happens at the trade deadline. We’ll see what happens over the next 10 days or so. But certainly the last 10 games have to make us a little more optimistic.” That’s what Sandy Alderson said to the New York Post just before the second half of the 2014 season started. It was a challenge...

Have Sandy Alderson’s moves aided the success of the pitching staff?

Throught the first 100 games of the season, the Mets pitching staff has a nearly identical Fielding Independent Pitching (3.77) as it did last year (3.79), but it’s ERA has greatly improved (3.53 vs. 3.78). So with peripherals that indicate similar outcomes, the results have been much better this year.  That 0.25 difference translates to 42 fewer earned runs over the course of...

Wright Says It’s Time For Mets To Be Adding Pieces

On Friday night, Sandy Alderson told reporters he was optimistic about his team’s chances in the second half which began with a win against the Padres in San Diego. “Sometimes you gotta believe, right?” Alderson asked before the game. “This is a time.” With 66 games remaining in the season and the team in third place and gaining traction, Sandy likes our odds. “Somebody...

Alderson Says He Will Not Trade For Rental Players

Mets GM Sandy Alderson spoke with Mike Puma of the New York Post and reiterated that he has no intention of trading for any rental players at the deadline, that is players who are in the final year of their contracts. “I don’t think we would deal significant prospects or significant value for somebody who is going to help us for a couple of months,” Alderson told the newspaper...

Has the Sandy Alderson plan worked?

At the end of the 2010 season, the New York Mets were in shambles. They had multiple massive contracts for bad players, they were in the middle of a downward spiral of losing seasons and had a farm system that was a disaster. Due to the Bernie Madoff scandal, finances were abysmal and the organization under Omar Minaya’s direction had become the butt of every joke and the laughing...
